Hello Everyone,

Having spent the best part of 3 years trying, and failing, to get my hands on a copy of the Sub Press release of either the Deluxe S/L (numbered 1-200) or Lettered Edition of The Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill, I am now going completely insane... :(

I was wondering if there is a kind soul out there who would be willing to sell me a copy of either the Deluxe S/L or Lettered Edition of this truly great book and put me out of my eternal suffering? :o

There is a copy on Abebooks http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=888508359&ir&xbf=b3MtcWctdWJ6cg__/94372754966743992238&clickid=wkOwzRzCGxWhXAoWrSSw4zFiUkT0EAyZw2J0Qo0&cm_mmc=aff-_-ir-_-59145-_-92815&afn_sr=impact

Contact the seller, I bet they would come down in price.

Good luck!

Thanks for this, but the copy on Abebooks is the standard limited edition that is numbered between 201-500. This copy does not contain any of the extras that came with the deluxe limited edition (numbered 1-200). Additionally, the seller is asking $550 for an edition that originally sold for $75. To me that is scalping.

I don't mind having to pay a bit more for a copy of this book, but I don't wish to be scalped.

Taken from the Sub Press website:

◦ 300 sewn hardcover copies
◦ bound in full cloth
◦ signed by the author

◦ two two-color illustrations
◦ an exclusive review of Hammered for Life: 15 SuperRock Hits
◦ signed by the author
◦ numbered 1-200

Lettered:
◦ 15 leatherbound copies, lettered A-O
◦ all of the extras in the Deluxe Limited
◦ housed in a custom “vault” traycase

Very intriguing, sure makes me more interested in finding a Deluxe ed. I was planning to pick up the second printing of the limited.
